Map Overview
Arctic overview.png

Arctic is a community-made King of the Hill map designed to be played in a 9vs9 Highlander format. It was the 1st place winner of STAR_'s King of the Hill Contest.


  • Team Structures: In front of both sides of the center of the map are team-colored structures that serve as both a pathway, and a vantage point. There is a second floor that is accessible by catwalk from the platform sides. There is also a small hole in the second floor that can be used as a quick way back down.
  • CP Platform: At the center of the map is a loading bay like platform that holds the control point. There are pathways to the CP from the sides, as well as from the side of the shipping containers surrounding the point. Underneath is an underground tunnel with a small health kit.
  • Platform sides: On both sides of the control point are open rooms overlooking the CP Platform. These rooms are accessible from a stairwell near each team's spawn, and from Rocket/sticky jumping.
